Mixed Media Workshop

The regular classes finished today but before I get carried away by the Christmas spirit I wanted to post some images from last Saturday’s mixed media workshop.  Sometimes I like to link themes to current exhibitions in the knowledge that some people will either have already visited them or intend to do so.

In light of the present “Analysing Cubism” exhibition at the F.E. McWilliam gallery, Banbridge, Co Down, the Paul Klee exhibition “Making Visible” at Tate Modern London, Gustav Klimt at the Portrait in Vienna exhibition, National Gallery London, I decided to (loosely) base the workshop around the theme of cubism and geometricizing images.

Nine people took part. Below are the results – please bear in mind that some are works in progress.
